Rye Baking

Rye baking inspired an all rye sourdough starter at 150% hydration with 30% of fermented rye described by @evelyns.crackers – but with the rest strong wheat flour. Instead of caraway or coriander toasted cinnamon and raisins were added. Incvredily easy to handle, and very tasty.

Yubeshi (ゆべし)

Yubeshi is a Japanese sweet or savory type of confectionary, like a  chutney or sweetmeat that is decidedly dried to allow for transport. They originated as snacks that warriors could take on the road. Although it can be made as a block or whatever shape, people like to stuff them into fragrant, hollowed out citrus shells, especially yuzu.


They almost always have some amount of sugar, and they are steamed after making. Then they are dried. They are typically made from a combination of ingredients that emphasize their sweetness or savoriness. The ones made with miso, for example, typically have nuts and no flour. The sweeter ones are made with rice or other flours, sugar and something salty like soy sauce or a lighter miso. Often dried fruits are added.

Christine Krauss is a foraging and fermentation teacher in Munich. Her goal is to combine global food and fermentation techniques with regional and seasonal products to expand the regional flavor world and create new flavors for a climate compatible cuisine. She sees her work, sharing her knowledge of finding and using the unexpected and unknown flavors that grow on our doorsteps and expanding the flavor spectrum of our regional products with global food and fermentation techniques. Christine develops climate-culinary events with new, surprising flavors, delicious, sustainable and joyful food on the table with products that grow and ferment where we live.
